OC3D Game of the Year Thread

A simple thread, what is your 2017 GAME OF THE YEAR and why.

You can list a single game or several games based on your own categories. The only rule is that the game needs to be released in 2017 or have received a major update/expansion.

My personal game of the year is Total War: Warhammer II, as I have easily spent the most hours playing it and the addition of the game's Mortal Empires campaign has allowed me to battle as Dwarves against Dinosaurs (Awesome).

Please post your favourite game, or games, below. A "worst of 2017 listing is also permissible.

It's tough for me because I have not been overly enamoured with any game this year. South Park : TFBW deserves a mention and I still have loads of it to do but I preferred the simplicity of the first game. Not that it's bad, but it's not perfect.

Wolfenstein was the biggest let down of the year for me. 30 mins of borrox, five mins of fun = repeat. Not a good game at all, Doom was much better.

Here's hoping 2018 brings something I want. Like L4D3, Dead Island 2, etc. Or Borderlands 3, that would be aces.

Didn't get the chance to buy or play all the games I wanted. Like AC:Origins, Divinity II, Hellblade, and probably a few more.

So with that only Wolfenstien 2, Warhammer 2, and Shadow of War count for me.

I'd probably be a toss up on Warhammer 2 and Shadow of War. Both were very fun games but Warhammer 2 has more replay-ability so I give it my 2017 award.
They did a lot to improve it and hopefully it gets better with more content. I enjoyed the Lizardmen immensely. So much fun watching Dino's eat elves

Tom Clancy's The division for me. Still keeps me coming back for more and 1.8 has really turned it around!

It's going to have to be PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds for me this year. I've dropped 350+ hours into it already. I dunno how but me and my group of friends just love it, no salt (other than the 1st week of 1.0 that was hella laggy) just fun!

Destiny 2 hooked me for a good month till I ran out of content and then saw the DLC collapse, uninstalled.
Horizon Zero Dawn is also worth a mention, although it didn't hold me for more than a 6 hour session. its a pretty game but the gameplay is just too similar to soo many other games.
Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice I sunk my teeth into it the other day. I've not seen much but I definitely enjoyed what i did play.
Mass Effect: Andromeda against all controversy its still a great game in its own light.
Forza Motorsport 7, easily the best racing game I've played this year.

It ran really poorly for me. Have they made it a bit better now?
